Bess is a brahmin found in Modoc in Fallout 2.


Bess is a beautiful, fine example of brahmin cattle, though not particularly lucky. She ran into trouble and got a lame leg while trudging through Modoc.

This character is involved in quests.


  • Help Bess the Brahmin: Using Doctor on her leg allows the Chosen One to heal Bess' leg (25% or more required). She will then follow the Chosen One around Modoc.

Other interactions

  • The Chosen One can sell Bess to Grisham and receive 100 meat jerky after 24 hours (placed in the crate outside the slaughterhouse). Oh, this costs -5 Karma.
  • If sold, the Chosen One can release her and fellow brahmin for +10 karma and a drop in Modoc reputation. They will later encounter her dead in a random encounter outside Modoc.


Bess appears only in Fallout 2.
